Made by German company Grimm's Spiel and Holz Design, who believes that imaginative play inspires children to discover and develop their own creativity. This Small Waves Stacker is a wooden stacking and nesting puzzle, hand carved from a single piece of wood. These nesting waves, gently dyed with non-toxic, water based stains in varying shades of blue, represent the element of Water. The pieces can be stacked and nested together as a puzzle. When not stacked, WaterWaves is a great open-ended toy; each wavy piece can be used in pretend play as a bridge, tunnel, fence, or cave for little gnomes, fairies or other small dolls (small Waldorf dolls are available from Grimm's. Sold separately).
Children will enjoy creative free play with these 6 wonderful nesting blocks using them for little houses, hills, see-saws and more. The possibilities are boundless when they are left to their own imagination. It is also great fun to use them as building blocks, especially when combined with other Grimm's Elements Stackers or their 2x2 building sets sets.
Winner of the prestigious Spiel Gut award, a quality mark awarded by the German Design Association's Committee of Games and Toys. Such an award recognizes high quality children toys that are also ecologically sensible. Due to the smallest pieces, this item is suitable only for ages 3 years & up. Unique, beautiful, and super fun, this WaterWaves is a clever and versatile wooden toy. Young children will learn to differentiate the colors and shades, and will exercise fine motor skills to stack and nest the blocks. This toy's ageless design and sturdy construction will last for generations -- truly an heirloom piece that will be cherished.
